Workhorse Hybrid Delivery Vans Are 5 Times More Efficient Than Conventional Delivery Vans

If you are in business, it’s all about the bottom line. Saving the world is all well and good, but not if it means lower profits. Workhorse has begun field trials of its hybrid delivery vans and the results are nothing short of amazing. In normal real world driving, these vans get between 5 and 8 miles per gallon. Workhorse says its hybrid electric E-GEN powertrain should be more efficient, but by how much?

It has supplied 125 E-GEN equipped delivery vans to UPS. Those vans were recently placed in service in Alabama, Arizona, Georgia, Florida, Mississippi, Nevada, Ohio and Texas. Workhorse monitors the performance of each system with an advanced telematics system it calls METRON — a proof-of-performance application that makes it possible for fleet managers to monitor and manage the performance of the vehicles in their fleet in near real time via a wireless 4G cellular network connection.

The vans have now completed the first 250,000 miles of service and the results are in. No salesman hyper-speak or puffery. No pie in the sky predictions. The data doesn’t lie and it shows the hybrid electric vans have achieved an astounding 30 MPGe rating in daily, real life, stop and go operation. At that rate, Workhorse calculates each van will save the owner $165,000 during its lifetime compared to a conventional van.

The Workhorse E-GEN is equipped with a 200 kW Sumo electric motor and a 60 kWh battery pack (45 kWh usable). It uses the familiar Panasonic 18650 cells — the same cells used in the Tesla battery pack. It also has a 2 cylinder internal combustion engine rated at 30 horsepower.
